About CHEM 2580 ZRA

Properties and reactivity of organic compounds with consideration of bonding, stereochemistry, and reaction mechanisms. For premedical and biological sciences students. Credit not awarded for both CHEM 2580 and CHEM 1580, CHEM 1582, or CHEM 1500. Prerequisite: CHEM 1450 or CHEM 1455.


Prereqs enforced by the system: CHEM 1450 or 1455; Must register for a CHEM 2580 lab Z01-Z20 Credit not granted for both CHEM 2580 & either 1150 or 1580; Post Bac Pre Med students only; Degree students register for CHEM 2580 A; $75 fee for lab supplies Total combined enrollment = 150

Section Description

Welcome to Organic Chemistry. The reactions and structures you learn throughout this semester are cumulative and will be applied to discussions later in the semester and into the spring. AIMS: At the end of this course (and Chem2585) a successful student will have developed skills and knowledge that allow them to answer the following questions:- I:- Recognize the atoms and bonding present in common functional groups, their resultant chemical properties and likely reactions. II:- Be able to create rational curved-arrow mechanisms to predict the likely products of reactions. Students that can combine these skills will be most successful, as this skillset will allow them to communicate with scientists in many other fields.

Section Expectation

Students will be expected to work independently to learn mechanisms, reactions, naming of chemical structures, and shapes/relationships of molecules. This will require problem-solving and some memorization.


The course grade will be based on exams, online homework, lab reports and lab quizzes.
